Hello! It’s Been Awhile

Hi lovelies!

I’ve been so busy. Things have slowed down so I wanted to share a bunch of stuff I have gotten and share my thoughts.

First up, The Rock Candy Studded Kiss Lipstick set and Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Prismatic Amethyst. I received these as birthday present. The highlighter is sooo pretty! I love the way it looks. All the lipsticks in the Rock Candy set are so pretty and pigmented. My fave one is called Crush.

Then I finally got my hands on the Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette!

Along with Lock-It Brightening Powder. I picked up Huda Beauty Liquid Matte

Lipstick in Gossip Girl. Check out the cute bag I got on the Kay Von D website

for Earth Day!

I found these beauties at Walmart. These brushes are pretty soft and worked really well.

Another Kat Von D product incoming! I grabbed the Lock-It Blotting Powder compact.

I LOVE it! The packaging is beautiful as well.

A friend of mine went to Bite LipLab in New York and had a lipstick made for me.

I thought that was sooo cool and it even smells like cherries!

The formula is awesome and I’m in love!

I also got these cool fandom items for my Birthday! My collection grows haha

I know this was a lot but I was playing catch up. I am waiting on my Play! by Sephora box

to come in and I’ll be able to share that.

Have a wonderful day everyone!

I used Kat Von D’s Metal Matte palette along with liquid lipstick in Plath. Also used Tattoo Liner in Trooper. Foundation is the Wet N Wild Photofocus. There’s no filter. It felt good to put some makeup on after being sick.

For my beauty addicts, have you seen all the cool stuff that has come out? Tarte, Too Faced, and others. I want them all hahaha

That’s all for now my pretties. Have a great night! Xoxo Laura

Review on New Wet N Wild Products!

I was super excited to try these. I was also a little wary, not gonna lie. I haven’t had the best luck with drugstore makeup. I know I know they’ve been improved but still….

Let’s get to my thoughts shall we?

I was impressed and in love! The foundation is creamy and a little goes a long way. I didn’t know that and put on a little too much the first time. Oops! It has a spatula type applicator, which I dug because I can put it straight on my face. Great coverage!

The next day I decided to use all of the products. The concealer is creamy as well. Great coverage without using a lot of product.

The pressed powder was a little weird. I couldn’t pick up the product with my brush or sponge. I scraped the top part a little and that seemed to fix my issue. It’s light and great for my touch ups. It doesn’t come with a sponge.

I took a pic while I was out. This is no filter. Excuse my sick face haha

I was like whaaaat! No flashback and I didn’t need a filter. Nice!

Bottom line I was impressed by these products and the price point is bonus! I need to get my hands on their highlighting powders. I’m thinking about reviewing some more drugstore makeup. Let me know some of your faves!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great night lovelies!

My Review on Wet N Wild’s MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick

Hey babes!

I wanted to share my review on the newest liquid matte lipsticks from Wet n Wild called MegaLast Liquid Catsuit. The colors I picked up were Pink Really Hard, Nudist Peach, and Nudie Patootie. They are 0.21 oz and are $4.99 a piece.

Here’s the description from the Wet n Wild website:

What glides on like butter, feels like a second skin and wont budge? Our Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick! Made with glammed out superpowers, it goes on glossy yet transforms into a high – pigmented matte finish with some serious staying power. Read our lips This color is going nowhere.

~Glides on glossy and transforms into high – pigmented matte finish
~Lightweight formula made with serious staying power
~Intense pigmentation without drying the lips

They swatched really well. Here’s what each color looked on me.

Top to bottom: Pink Really Hard, Nudist Peach, and Nudie Patootie.

My thoughts:

They went on really nice. Creamy even. They didn’t have a weird smell. There wasn’t any streaking. I will test out how long they last in the next couple of days. I am in love with these!! I was honestly surprised at how awesome these are. I haven’t had a lot of luck when it comes to drugstore makeup. They are a steal at this price and I plan on getting more in different colors.

That’s it for tonight folks! Hope you liked my review.

Have a great night! XOXO Laura
